PITTSFIELD -- Town Players of Pittsfield will present staged readings of two short comedies by Walter Wykes, 5:30 and 7 p.m. Thursday at the Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Ave.
The program is part of Pittsfield's Third Thursday series of free events.
"The Tragical Tale of Melissa McHiney McNormous McWhale" is a terrific comedy about a woman with "ginormous derriere." The chorus of characters will take you through her life of woes, love, and success.
"Family 2.0" explores a husband who wants it all. He decides he is going to take on the life of a completely different family to get away from the responsibilities of his own. Little does he know, the honeymoon won't last forever.
The cast for both plays includes Jamie Trie, Chris Brophy, Jill Wanderman, Joshua Carty, Jetter White, and Cheyenne Reed.
Meredith Carty is directing.
